Comments from the recent SFL4 Workshop
"Having been a triple amputee for 36 years I didn't know if I could learn much. I was wrong! We found compassion, our tears flowed, our hearts danced, our spirits were more…well…Life changing!!!"
The Skills for Life workshop is a unique event dedicated to bilateral upper limb loss. It will include a program devoted specifically to issues faced by individuals with bilateral upper limb loss. Presenters will include individuals living with bilateral upper limb loss, therapists, prosthetists, physicians and others.
"I am looking forward to the fourth Skills for Life.

Comments from SFL 3
"It's the most human, instructive, wonderful conference I ever have attended. Thank you again!"
"Everything about the workshop was very good. Everyone seemed like they really truly cared about everyone and was very passionate about what they do. Thank you very much for putting a workshop like this on. It was really an eye opener for my son Parker. He now knows how truly independent he can become."
"This was the best conference/workshop I have attended in my career/OT of 25 years."
